    Red face Apple Carplay suggestions

    I am new to the group I have a 2013 Mazda CX-5 GS. I just want to know if any of you got some Apple Carplay recommendations.. not looking to spend a lot.

    *if you replace the head unit will the back up camera still work?
    *Will the bluetooth buttons still work?

    I am going away next month and I prefer using the Applecarplay vs. cheap GPS.

    Thank you

    For now just get a suction cup phone mount and use your iPhone for navigating (and use Google Maps instead of Apple Maps ). Mazda is "supposed" to be working on bringing carplay at some point... no sense spending a ton of money making other modifications right now really.

    He has a 2013, which I don't believe has Mazda Connect and as such won't get the update if it ever shows up.

    OP: I had the lowest end Pioneer NEX in my last Mazda 3 before it got wrecked. I quite liked that system, but I was using Android Auto. Not sure if the experience difference with Carplay.
